draft Fern Tree Park Visitor Node Master Plan


The Wellington Park Management Trust and the City of Hobart are seeking comments on the draft Fern Tree Park Visitor Node Master Plan.   The draft master plan recommends a new terraced nature-based playground in Fern Tree Park, the refurbishing of the old picnic shelter, upgrading of the Fern Glade Entrance car park with a new footpath along Huon Road between the park and car park, and a new accessible public toilet and public car park in the Fern Tree Tavern car park. The Master Plan also includes recommendations for improvements at the Fern Tree Bower and Silver Falls, and the network of tracks that connect these sites.

Please download the project information package for information on how you can comment on the draft master plan or follow this link to the City of Hobart Your Say website.

If you wish to find out more about the Master Plan please come to a 'walk and talk' with the consultants at Fern Tree Park on Sunday 20 November starting at 2:30 pm.

For further information on the project contact the Manager.
